MakingStarWars.com continues to monitor the action on the set of Star Wars: The Mandalorian!
The activity on the set of The Mandalorian has been pretty interesting in the last few days but there’s not a lot to report at the moment (we have irons in the fire, don’t worry). A lot of the sets were taken down, reconfigured, and noted with orange cones and sometimes little flags. We’re guessing that the flags are for photographic reference on the spot so they can be set back up at a later date. The alleyway/street set pieces have been lined up and reconfigured several times too. If you look at the photo of the alley below you can see the numbers on the backs of the sets are different than in previous days and configurations. We assume this is to make the modular pieces seem like they built way more sets than they did.
Another thing of note is that we noted in a recent update that a lot of red sand was brought in. IT was put onto the original “Tatooine” set and the ground is a bit more red to the eye than you would think Tatooine would be. Does that mean the location isn’t Tatooine? Your guess is as good as ours. As for the black lava planet with the marketplace alley on it, we got a good shot of the modular black wall by itself and unobstructed by other set pieces.
Speaking of the Tatooine set, there was something being filmed that was really important on that location last night. They took the big shipping containers and “circled the wagons” around the location to keep the filming totally under wraps. The sequence being filmed did not appear to be full of action but rather one of the more quiet moments as far as we could tell and there did not seem to be a lot of people on the set either:
I also forgot to post this tiny video to the site of the creature we saw on set. It was pretty funny because we thought he was a puppet and then he started moving. Here’s a small video I put up on the MSW Instagram:
I’m really excited for this show. So far we haven’t seen anything or heard anything that made us scratch our heads. Everything looks fantastic and the rumors we hearing, if they pan out, are going to make everyone’s excitement shoot up to eleven in the Spinal Tap sense.
